SHRED SOME DIRT: MORRO BAY BIKE PARK
Morro Bay hosts the only bike park in SLO County, with an intricate half-acre space dedicated to BMX and mountain bike lovers. Almost a year old, this park holds the heart of many bikers, both locals and visitors alike. Filled with trails, dirt jumps and obstacles, many kids (and adults, too!) spend hours navigating the park. It is a safe and fun environment for riders of all ages and skill sets. The park is open from sunrise to sunset and is available to the public with no admission cost. Only non-motorized bicycles allowed. To check out bike rental options, click HERE.
KAYAK TO “ADVENTURE ISLAND:” THE SANDSPIT
The calm and protected waters of the bay make for perfect paddling, whether you’re a first-time or seasoned kayaker. In a kayak, you will have access to much that is not visible from shore. Two dozen threatened or endanger species live in the area including the Peregrine Falcon, Brandt Goose, Brown Pelican, Sea Otter and Snowy Plovers. Bring your camera along to capture the sight of these unique creatures. However, one of the most treasured areas of Morro Bay is the 5-mile sandspit that forms the bay. Kayak across the bay to dock at this quiet landmass, and spend hours adventuring through the untainted dunes. Bring your lunch along as this is a peaceful location for a picnic.
